In 1997, I traveled through India with preconceived visions of a country, having read and eaten quite everything I could find about its culture over a period of 20 years before I ever got to visit it. After traveling thousands of miles to get there, from taking taxis to riding on an elephant, the travel became more of a race contest inside a camera lens than a human experience. I returned home with lots of videotapes but as an empty spirit who has returned home like a passenger who has missed its train.
For years, I searched for a project that would try to re-conciliate my soul with “Mother India”. In 2004, I finally found a way through a VJ project to experiment with new visual softwares, finding the means to take a renewed path enabling me to create a different dialogue with India.
In this project, I used various video softwares for editing such as Adobe Premiere, After effects and Visualjockey. I also have experimented for the first time a new generation of DVD editing such as Adobe Encore. After years of reflecting and months of work, I hope that I have found a way to express many of my soul emotions of this Indian experience and translate it into a personal vision of humanity.
